Many of us have our favorite place to watch the Magic Kingdom fireworks but in the end, sometimes it’s just simply difficult to find that GREAT spot. Here’s a little clue to one of the best places to stand as well as videotape WISHES.
As the crowd is gathering for the fireworks show, position yourself in the area near Casey’s. Hang out there until you see people begin to find their "watching spot" and enter the Main Street pavement between Casey’s and the Plaza restaurant. Eventually you see cast members mulling about as they get ready to tape off a line that will be the throughway for guests during the fireworks show. This area really doesn’t get much use as everyone is watching the show. Your job is to get your toes right on that tape, in the center of the street, as the CM’s block off the crossway. At this point you will not have anyone standing in front of you and you’ll have a very good view of the castle and the show.
Although my wife and I rent a car on trips to WDW, the Magic Kingdom is the only park we use Disney bus transportation, to simply avoid the trip to the parking lot at the end of the day. Although we’ve had to stand a few times on the bus, we’ve found avoiding the ferry and tram line has saved us time and been a wise choice.
Great tip! We have gone to the bakery to get ice cream sandwiches to then returned to the same area you are speaking of to wait on wishes. There is nothing like seeing Wishes from right in front of the Castle!
And I agree with you on not driving to Magic Kingdom. I hate to have to go by monorail to shuttle to the car…. I would rather just wait on the bus.
Excellent tip Bruce! My family usually tries to find a spot in front of the castle, but we’ve never noticed a throughway that we could stand behind to avoid having people in front of us. I’ll be at the Magic Kingdom 2 weeks from today and will try this suggestion for sure!
Can’t wait to tray this out! Thanks Bruce!
